Some Important Information

Since the regular skipper of Delhi Capitals, Shreyas Iyer, has had a shoulder injury in the recently wrapped up India-England ODI series, the team would be headed by Rishab Pant for the 14th Edition of the Indian Premier League 2021.

They are all set to display some splendid performances and win the hearts of millions of their fans worldwide.
